Friday Affirmations — Dream

***DREAM***   I brought this dream globe to the Vintage Bazaar last weekend thinking it would be just something fun to have in the booth, a bit of floral fun and bling.  This small globe with it’s simple word DREAM went home with a young teenage gal.  Her Mom bought it for her with the stipulation that she use her allowance to pay for it. She wanted it enough that she was willing to use her own money to have it.  I also had a first grade teacher want to buy it for her classroom and when she came back, it was gone and she was disappointed because she wanted to send that message to her kids.

I realized how powerful that word DREAM really is and how happy I was that a young girl was going to gaze at it every day and dream about what she wanted to be, how she wanted her life to unfold in front of her…without intending I played in my own dreamscape and touched someone else’s.  That is a powerful thing and why I TOTALLY BELIEVE that art heals and dream do come true….

We are ever so connected and every act moves it’s way through the universe and touches someone else, in a real and impactful way.  This lesson is teaching me to be more mindful, more aware of what I put inside of me, what I put out there and with whom I share my dreams……the lesson is HUGE for me and is such a reminder that the more good that goes out the more good that comes back.  Every day a sign that living with intention brings such joy and happiness.

I hope you are all living your ***DREAM*** and find ways to do so every day.  You enrich my life in immeasurable ways every time you reach out to me….***DREAM*** away.

    Those are the sales that make all the hassles of shows worthwhile! A fine story to give a lift to the start of the weekend. Enjoy yours!

    Your art draws people to it – what a gift (for the girl, for you, and for me reading about it)- to know the message that young girl was drawn to is such a soul lifter and encourager- just like you Corrine!

    I found your story of the little girl buying your gorgeous globe very touching. It is so rewarding when you know your artwork is a blessing to others. Have a marvelous weekend, my friend!

    When I saw that piece at Vintage Bizaar, I knew it would go home to someone. Art connects us to others and to ourselves . Words have power. Combine the two and it just becomes a dynamic force. Your work inspires, amazes, and heals others!

    what a beautiful story, and what a fitting home for your globe.

  11. Christine June 28, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    I love your globe, I love globes…and the sentiment is beautiful too.

  12. Pamela June 28, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    That is great! Great globe…great story….and that girl buying it with her own money…next time make two!

    I can just imagine how the girl felt getting this piece of art. So different and fun. So true about putting the good out there.

  14. gloria June 28, 2013 at 12:18 pm #

    What a wonderful idea. A dream globe. Wow. I can see myself making wishes upon it. Beautiful and happy it went to a good home. Happy PPF!

    It’s great to actually meet a person who is going to enjoy and appreciate your art. The globe is such a nice representation of dream in many ways – lucky girl. And, you’re right about how this community of like-minded artsy types is so very supportive, encouraging and inspiring – it has become such a part of my life in many unexpected ways. Thanks for sharing your thought provoking musings on Fridays – I look forward to them.

    Love it! HPPF!

    words are so powerful …. I find that a piece is not complete without some language added to it – whether it’s just one word or a few – it adds so much meaning. I happy for that teenage girl – she has confidence in her dreams I think 🙂

    Looking ahead, I see the young woman moving this globe from her bedroom to her new home, then, one day, soulfully moving it from her own chest of drawers to her baby daughter’s room. Your art not only touches her today, but far beyond her in the future. I believe you have created a family heirloom, my friend!

  20. Maria June 28, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

    Your post is very moving. I’m crying..I use to have dreams…I try to envision or to figure out what my dreams are and it’s scary and sad to say I have no idea….makes me sad that I can’t figure it out..its sorta feeling lost…anyhow..I’ve said too much. Lovely and inspiring post. It sure moved me and is making me think…and feel. Thank you.

  21. Debbie Smith June 28, 2013 at 2:31 pm #

    Great story and amazing collaged globe!

  22. Jo Murray June 28, 2013 at 3:14 pm #

    Seems that sentiment really resonates with everyone. Well done.

  23. Dorthe June 28, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    Dear Corrine, I know how you felt ,when the young woman bought your wonderful globe of dreams!!
    I have tried the same,- just with my fairies …to young wemen – not playing dolls anymore, but still not grown!! Kind of a bigger cadeau – than when grown ups or kids, wants to have !!!!!!!
    Feels more fantastic,-but also when a little girl 7 years uses her pocket money, for a doll to sit on her bed 🙂 This post also so enriched my life, dear friend,-thank you!!!

  24. giggles June 28, 2013 at 3:31 pm #

    Oh, honey, you are the Dream Weaver! Love this fabulous globe and that it now is inspiring a young girl. I bet that teacher will want to try her hand at making one because you showed her it’s possible. I sure wish I could’ve come to your show!

  27. Ginny June 28, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    This is a beautiful story. Looking at your beautiful globe and the word “dream” will definitely make a difference for t his young girl and everyone else who sees her globe each day. I have a feeling that the teacher will find a way to help her students believe in themselves and their dreams. It is exciting to think about how many lives may be changed because of your art.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  28. Andrea June 28, 2013 at 8:09 pm #
